Alton Plaza at the Petroleum Building

Originally designed in 1953, the Petroleum Building in downtown Lubbock had become an eyesore and faced potential demolition. But Saigebrook Development, along with REES, had a vision to transform it. Our team worked with the City of Longview to ensure that the restoration meets the community’s need for affordable housing. The design preserves historic features like marble walls and terrazzo flooring with brass inlay. A diner and malt shop will be reimagined as a modern, but nostalgic, internet café and lounge. This project will also utilize the historic tax credit program.
